I have been playing around with shots of this rose ever since getting some flowers on Saturday. I'm just not sure I'm getting anything very good. I like some of the shots but I've seen such awesome flower shots from others that I think I could do better. So, I'm just wondering about getting some CC.
#1 Taken with a leather chair on its side as the background! SS 0.3 seconds, f3.5, ISO 200
#2 I was trying the super-macro mode on my P&S for this one and I don't know... it won't let you select the focal point in that mode, it just focuses in the center of the shot, so I kept locking focus and then re-framing the picture trying to get the center of the rose as the focal point, but it would not work for me. I actually kind of like it this way, but I'm wondering if to others it basically ruins the shot that the center of the rose isn't in focus.
SS 1/50, f2.7, ISO 200
#3 (Focus was same issue as in #2 with super-macro mode/re-framing the shot)
SS 1/13, f2.7, ISO 80
#4 SS 1/5, f3.5, ISO 80
